KV Mechelen defender Anthony Van Loo has described Anderlecht’s winger Frank Acheampong as the fastest player in the Belgian Pro League.
Van Loo struggled to match the speed of the Ghana international and was replaced at half-time by Ghanaian Jerry Vandam.
“I did not think I played such a dramatic first half. Why was substituted, you should ask the coach.
”He told me to sit and so I took off my shoes and not responded. We were often caught on speed , also in the second half.
‘Especially by Acheampong. He is fast, the fastest player in first class. Yeah, faster than Diabang.”
